Paper Dolls Challenge #36

This weeks Paper Dolls Challenge is from my friend Jen! She picked an adorable color combo from a quilt she recently purchased! The colors are just too fun!  I made this card at our Stamping Away weekend because we had a little sneak peek of Jen's colors!  :)

Here is my card...

The embossed background is from a new Sizzix Folder (Country Foliage), courtesy of Amy's enabling!  I love this one!  I am pretty sure you are going to see me use it...a lot!!  Those leaves are also from a Sizzix die!  I really like the small leaves!  Those rolled roses are MFT dies!  LOVE!  And this sentiment is from the new Paper Smooches set!  This really is a great set to have if you don't already!  Lots of great sentiments in such fun fonts!

My sister and her fam have been here this last week!  We have had so much fun playing outside and going to the zoo!  It definitely has been a busy weekend!  Glad she could visit and sure wish she lived closer!

Those flowers are delicious! I am waiting on my new silhouette machine to arrive and I've got a cut file for those rolled roses but if it doesn't turn out like I want I'll HAVE to get that MFT die.
